Bruzzi, Stella.
"The President and the Image." Sight & Sound. 8(7):16-19. 1998 July
"The US motion pictures industry has produced a number of films depicting the president since Bill Clinton's election as head-of-state in 1992 and 1996. These movies categorized the president either as saviours, such as 'The American President,' 'Air Force One' and Independence Day' or evil men, such as 'Dave,' 'Clear and Present Danger' and 'Absolute Power.' These fictional images of the president are created because of the growing disillusionment of the public with the presidency." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The prez needs a press agent." (depictions of the presidency in films and novels) Insight on the News June 16, 1997 v13 n22 p37(1)
The current popularity of fiction and movies with a president as the main character continues a long tradition of writers and playwrights targeting the presidency. Contemporary portrayals are far less reverent than those of the past.

"Any movie can be viewed as political, but only films that undermine accepted stereotypes or challenge the status quo are labeled political films. Recent political movies such as 'Bulworth' and 'Primary Colors' were financial flops despite boasting big stars, and Hollywood has historically been more interested in the bottom line than in any social or political message. An overview of the current state of politics in films is presented." [Expanded Academic Index]

Levine, Lawrence W.
"Hollywood's Washington: Film Images of National Politics During the Great Depression." Prospects 1985 10: 169-195.
"Though many film historians believed that American films of the 1930's were primarily "escapist," and that the few political films made were leftist, there was in fact a substantial body of right-wing and centrist political films during the Great Depression. Films from the first half of the 1930's such as Gabriel Over the White House and King Vidor's Our Daily Bread reflected both the fear and the appeal of fascism, while movies later in the decade such as Fury (1936), The Legion of Terror (1936) and Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) attacked vigilantism and authoritarianism."

"Dante's Watergate: 'All The President's Men' As A Romance Narrative." American Journalism 1997 14(3-4): 303-316 14p.
"One of five articles in a special issue discussing investigative journalism. The structure of Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward's 'All the President's Men' (1974), their investigation of the Watergate affair, follows that of Dante's 'Inferno' and uses techniques common in romance fiction - detective fiction in particular. These features change the question from whether journalism can be literature to what sort of literature journalism might be. The book was promoted as a nonfiction novel, thus encouraging it to be read as literature. Romance often features a descent (Bernstein and Woodward's descent into fear and dread) as well as self-discovery and affirmation (the authors' questioning of their own morals). Rather than being objective, the authors deliberately cast public figures as heroes and villains." [A. J. Sobczak]

"Warren Beatty's melancholy political satire 'Bulworth' dwells on the corruption of politicians in general and the disgrace of the Democrats in general. Compared to earlier political movies 'Wag the Dog' and 'Primary Colors,' it is less cynical and also more naive.

"The satire 'Bulworth' is one of the most politically radical films to come out of Hollywood. Using sensationalistic language and images as well as humor that often becomes farce, it attacks the American political system, racial injustice, the economic dominance of business and the corruption of the mass media. Although 'Bulworth' is not likely to go down cinematic history as an all-time great, it discusses important issues and presents radical solutions." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The use of African American cultural is found throughout the film "Bullworth" directed by and starring Warren Beatty. The title character builds support for his campaign by adopting African American language and music. Direct references to African American 'Hood films of the early 1990s are also found in "Bullworth." The author argues that the African American cultural references bolster the political message of the film." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Though many film historians believed that American films of the 1930's were primarily "escapist," and that the few political films made were leftist, there was in fact a substantial body of right-wing and centrist political films during the Great Depression. Films from the first half of the 1930's such as Gabriel Over the White House and King Vidor's Our Daily Bread reflected both the fear and the appeal of fascism, while movies later in the decade such as Fury (1936), The Legion of Terror (1936) and Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) attacked vigilantism and authoritarianism."

UC users only
"At the time of its release, John Frankenheimer's film The Manchurian Candidate (1962), based on the 1959 novel by John Condon, defied plot analysis or genre categorization, but the film's subject of US soldiers brainwashed by Chinese forces during the Korean War found particular resonance in US popular culture. Beginning in 1952, popular journalists frightened and titillated their readers with dubious tales of Communist mind-control techniques. Some critics who analyzed the film in 1962-63, however, saw the film as a commentary on McCarthyism - the character of Senator Raymond Shaw bears striking resemblances to Joseph McCarthy. In fact, the film fails to critique cogently Rightist politics and approves authoritarian methods to deal with political extremism. The film's real target for criticism may be "Momism," since it was the invasive upbringing of the protagonist by his mother that made him a good candidate for brainwashing."

Although intended as a liberal project critical of McCarthyism, the film is trapped within the Cold War consensus and indicates the extent to which American institutions were co-opted and compromised by Cold War ideology."

"Brainwashing and Cold War Demonology." Prospects 1997 22: 535-573.
"The 1950's was a time of intense interest in accounts of mind control, and the term "brainwashing" was coined in 1950. At a time of high Cold War tension, I Was Stalin's Prisoner (1952), a first-person account of US executive Robert A. Vogeler's experiences with mind control as a political prisoner in Hungary, produced derivative fiction. Brain-Washing in Red China (1951) and other writings by Edward Hunter proclaimed the danger and potentially devastating possibilities of brainwashing. Richard Condon's The Manchurian Candidate (1959), made into a movie directed by John Frankenheimer in 1962, tapped into public fascination and concern over mind-control techniques. Novels by William Burroughs, A. E. van Vogt, and Francis Pollini all incorporate brainwashing themes. By the time of Walter Wager's Telefon (1975), the subject of brainwashing techniques had become passé." [America: History and Life]

"Films set in the Korean War of 1950-1953 portrayed American prisoners of war (POWs) in a different manner. While films on Vietnam and World War II emphasized the adventures and heroism of American POWs, Korean POW films focused on collaboration with the enemy. Such feature films as 'Prisoner of War,' (1954) 'The Bamboo Prison' (1954), 'The Rack' (1956) and 'The Manchurian Candidate' (1962) promoted the concept of brainwashing as one of the reasons behind the widespread collaboration involving American soldiers imprisoned in Korea."
